The Ramblings of a Reluctant Civil Servant

Why isn't it Home-Time Yet ?
Why isn't it Home-Time Yet ?

It feels like four thirty...... I want out.

Train was delayed en route into Glumsville this morning.
Apparently it was the wrong type of gloriously crisp and Sunnny Winter Morning.

What a bugger eh ?!

The Sad State of Society...As a Judge heard a case in which an entire Family Beats a child.
The Sad State of Society... As a Judge heard a case in which an entire Family Beats a child.

A seven-year-old boy was at the centre of a courtroom drama yesterday
when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him.
The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge
initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law
and regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the degree

The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him
more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When
the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy
cried out that they also beat him!

After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning
that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the
judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who
should have custody of him. After two recesses to check legal references
and confer with child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary
custody to the England Football Team , whom the boy firmly believes are
not currently capable of beating anyone.
